Employers

Many employers are recognising the advantages of having a diverse workforce that better reflects society. By seeing past a learning difficulty or recovery from a mental health issue they find dedicated and capable employees. Our Employment Officers work hard to find the right person for the right job and the support we provide is for the employer too. We are always here to answer any questions at any stage and provide one-to-one support as clients settle into their new role.
